businesses would get tax relief. the position republicans have taken is that unless people like mitt romney or companies like being capital get tax relief, nobody in the country gets cat -- tax relief. the president also called upon the congress to take up a jobs bill. that has been sitting before the congress for over one year now. it was submitted last september and calls for a major new investment in our country's infrastructure. obviously, the need to out there if you just look at our aging infrastructure. we have over 14% unemployment in the construction industry so this is a win-win. finally, we have these across the board tax cuts taking place. the democrats in the house proposed a balanced alternative to make sure that those cuts to not take effect or cut defense and non-defense programs in an indiscriminate manner. house republican colleagues said they don't want to allow that to happen to their refuse to allow a vote on the democratic substitute. is the most balanced approach offered. it is closing loopholes for big companies and other types of revenue measures. those items we sho

what i understand ifrom mitt romney, he doesn't believe in any care. my husband has high blood pressure. he was not a mechanic ever insurance we went to, and he could not pass the physical. the insurance company would not injure him. i tried to buy him insurance. as soon as he said he was employed independent, nobody would injure him. that is my big issue. when people have worked their whole lives and they get sick, we should be able to buy insurance. host: dr. makary, what role -- and if you want to address her specific point, that is fine, but what role do the insurance companies play in this unaccountableness, as you call it? guest: we have had no good ways to measure the quality of health care. the insurance companies have been eager to get into the business of looking at performance and use it as a way to pay hospitals and doctors. the problem is, we have not had a good measure until now. there is a very exciting revolution taking place in medical care now. it is in medicare website, hospital compare, and it has ratings for hospitals, patient satisfaction scores to my information o
governor romney or president obama is talking about agriculture in this campaign. it is an important part, a foundation of the u.s. economy. ethanol, i fought for ethanol since i was governor. it has lowered the price of fuel. it is created tens of thousands of jobs. i was in blair last week, a great example of bipartisan effort. there is a new dcompany with a hundred jobs. is is not a failure. this is not a threat to our economy. the interest of agriculture and the united states are completely in alignment. there's no need to choose. >> senator fischer? >> i grew up in lincoln. my husband and i have been married for 40 years. agriculture is important to the state. what is important is that we always work together as a state. is urban and rural interests, and because of agriculture, it is important to the state of nebraska a. one entry jobs is dependent on the agriculture economy. people across nebraska realize and understand that. we need to keep in mind, a balancing act. we have done that in nebraska and we have done that in the last a years in the legislature. that is how we grow our e
of character, and out. -- character, no. what surprised me in terms of mitt romney is that there are a lot of a genuine interesting stories that you heard about the convention, the people he has helped. but there were a lot that did not get cold. the ones that were told were very serious and heartbreaking. there were a lot of stories about decency, him as a person. they are very interesting. there are decisions on an ongoing basis not to share them in a public way. >> several olympics ago, i was going to cover the event, and he happened to be there in their role of his head of the olympic games. i had never met him before, so we just had a conversation. when i said to him, more than four years ago, there is a lot of talk about your running for president and the person that answer that question was a completely different person than the person that talked about his sudden. -- his son. it is a very interesting dynamic and in a way, sometimes, i found politicians to be the opposite of that. there are politicians, so they are very out there when they are talking about something that is going t
discussed would offer opportunities for governor romney or president obama to score political points. and what that argument might sound like on these issues. is there any chance that either of them will try to do something like this? >> i think it would be a reference back. because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play against undecided voters. it is a motivator to get out and get to the polls. you want this person to replace justice ginsberg when she retires for example. you want to know if there's any practical experience, and the obama at the lustration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. present romney might decide he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. it does seem like that has a lot of salience and presidential debates. i.t. think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attacked as publicly since 1996 or before. it is remarkable. the republicans were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the polls. th
, and individual opportunity that serve as a basis for peace in our world. >> wednesday, october 3, mitt romney and president obama meet in the first presidential debate, moderated by jim lehrer of "the newshour." what can engage with c-span, including our live previous at 7:00 p.m. eastern, the debate at 9:00, and after the debate, your reaction. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and c- span.org. >> defense secretary leon panetta today said it was obvious the killing of four americans at a u.s. consulate in libya was a terrorist attack. he also said more attacks on american soldiers by afghan soldiers are likely. the remarks came this afternoon with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. >> since the general dempsey just returned from the war front, we thought it would be worth making some comments on afghanistan -- since the general did see just returned from the war front -- since general dempsey just returned from the war front. i will invite general dempsey to share his comments as well. last week, we completed the drawdown of 33,000 surge forces that the president ord
. >> the second question comes from me, and it is for you. your party's candidate for governor mitt romney has been trying to explain a lot what he meant at a florida fund-raiser when he said there are 47% of americans who believe they are victims and believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, but they are entitled to health care, food, and housing. is that how you see them? >> sure, i think he made a major mistake in saying people want to be victims. he pointed out there are 49% of the people that do not pay income taxes. there are different categories. some do not because they are retired. i would not call them and victimized. others have a low income and do not qualify for paying taxes on the federal level. what i have supported all along is tax reform that will require people working and making real money to pay taxes. our tax system is just right with all kinds of exceptions. i have supported legislation, voted for legislation on the floor. good the budget specifically talks about tax reform, which would expand the base, expand the tax base, eliminating any loopholes, a
themselves as victims? >> i look very positively -- >> would you disagree with governor romney on this point? gregg's i have my own point of view. i believe the people of america still believe in the american dream. our responsibility is to make sure that this is a country where everyone has equal opportunity to compete and to succeed and pursue their dreams. i will expand on this later in our debate, i suppose, but if you look at the records, who has created more opportunities? i mentioned welfare reform. those are folks who were down and out and temporarily needed help. i want to help. even folks who are disabled want to work. that is one of the great attributes and characteristics of all americans. they do not look at themselves as victims. they want a government that sees there -- to reflect their values and gives them an opportunity to be able model. >> give an opportunity to have a bottle. >> i do not think the question of whether you agree or disagree with governor romney's statements are hard. they were divisive comments and -- >> this debate is courtesy of washington d.c. to see the
